If at the beginning the ever-growing interest in the most important touristic town of Morocco has been considered a fad, today Marrakech is one of the most visited travel destinations. So, what is its secret?
Marrakech is one of those places on earth which take you to another dimension. The Red City has introduced a concept of sightseeing based on emotions: the visitor is seduced, fascinated and amazed by the treasures Marrakech reveals - step by step - while strolling around. Built in the middle of the desert, Marrakech invites you to get to know a very special atmosphere, something close to mysticism. Everything there is unique: from the pink color of the buildings to the traffic jam with no rules up to the goats on the passenger seats of scooters.
Marrakech excels in the art of keeping the right balance between tradition and modernity. Sometimes secret, sometimes exuberant, this city has made a deal with the visitor: the more curious you are, the more you will enjoy.
As the main imperial city of the country, Marrakech is proud to have one of the most beautiful Medina in the world. In the heart of its 15 kilometers ramparts, a microcosm totally hermetic to outside influences perpetuates an age-old traditional lifestyle which has survived the test of time. Jemaah El Fna, the most emblematic square and epicenter of the Medina, has been the scene of a human spectacle which has crossed the centuries without losing an ounce of its essence: snake charmer, storytellers, orange juice stalls and giant barbecues make up the setting. The Medina takes you to a mysterious space the child inside you should take as a playground. In a hide and seek mood, the visitor is expected to wander in every single narrow street to find out behind which carved wooden door a beautiful palace offers a piece of heaven.
Sometimes you will find a quiet café, whose crazy adventurous steps lead up to an amazing panoramic terrace, to enjoy a mint tea. The Medina is the land of riads, better known as guest houses and the place where the visitor will get in touch with locals through the bargaining experience of bustling markets.
